Terrorism and the Media presents the diverse points of view of those involved in and affected by insurgent terrorism: terrorists, journalists, victims, researchers, governments and the public. It analyzes the objectives, successes and failures of terrorism, and addresses media related issues such as freedom of the press, codes of ethics, intimidation, victimization, technology and censorship.
The book includes: interviews with terrorists from Northern Ireland, Spain and the PLO; an analysis of the expansion of counter terrorism measures in the UK to more generalized civil and media control - indicating that such measures breed rather than inhibit terrorism; an account of the ambivalent attitudes of media editors towards terrorism; a description of the tripartite relationship between victims, media and governments, illustrated by the campaign to free hostages in Lebanon.
